Core Resurrection and Hip Opening: Jump Start Your Passion

Does your passionate self need a wake-up call? We hold passion in our bodies. When our passion is asleep, we can feel stuck or numbed out. When it is awake, we feel creative and energized. Learn how to use your poses to turn on your own passion!

Through specific and unique abdominal work you will resurrect your core strength. A strong core increases self confidence, a necessary ingredient in living out passionate desires. Our hips contain the energy center from which new ideas are birthed. Through standing poses and seated poses, you’ll learn to create space in your hips and release tension from overworked butt muscles. Physically freeing this area gives us a feeling of space and freedom to quest for that which lights our soul on fire!

All levels welcome. Modifications given for injuries and limitations.

Compassionate and Effective Hands-On Assisting

Refine your teaching with this excellent opportunity to build confidence in your hands, learn new assists, and connect with other teachers in your community.

Learn assists for seated poses, standing poses and Savasana. The training will also cover pose modifications for students with injuries.

About Denise Hopkins

Denise Hopkins, E-RYT 500, Forrest Yoga Guardian, began her yoga journey after working for 13 years in the NYC fashion industry. Yoga became her saving grace to the competitive nature of the business. After searching for a teacher training in the city, she decided to take the Forrest Yoga training based on gut instinct. It was life changing. She completed her training with founder Ana Forrest in 2005 and currently assists Ana nationally at workshops and teacher trainings.

Through FY, Denise learned the skills she needed to let go of old behavior patterns which set her up for being “walked on”. She found an inner strength which birthed new confidence, passion, and lots of feeling. In 2010 Denise partnered up with Kate Lubensky to create Yoga for Breast Cancer, a DVD created to address the needs of breast cancer battlers and survivors. It was so well received that they recently produced two more DVD’s entitled Gentle Yoga for Cancer and Yoga for Heart Health.

Denise draws from her strong sense of intuition and passion for hands-on healing. She has a knack for reading the energy of students and responding to what they need. Denise’s way of instructing is direct, clear, and inspiring. It is her desire that every student feels seen and understood. She also incorporates her work with Cranial Sacral Therapy into her hands-on assists and private sessions.
